Dear Flight Attendants,
The Master Executive Council (MEC) knows everybody is focused on the Tentative Agreement (TA) and upcoming roadshows right now. However the Harvard Flight Attendant Healthy Study is wrapping up next week (the week of January 6th). Because of this the researchers have asked the MEC to send out a final reminder about the survey.
Lead researchers Eileen and Sara thank you for carving out the time during the busy holiday season to participate in the Harvard Flight Attendant Health Study. The feedback they have received is very positive. Flight attendants expressed that they were grateful and happy for this research.
The Harvard researchers want Flight Attendants to know that they are on a mission to understand how the work you do affects your health over time so that everyone can learn how to prevent problems in the future. Many Flight Attendants voiced that they would like to know the results of the survey; Harvard setup www.fahealth.org just for that purpose. Please check it out.
The participation response for the survey thus far is around 33%, which is just short of the participation in 2007 (nearly 50%). The Harvard team will continue to recruit and will be headed to LAX and SFO in the next few months. They are looking to get a high participation rate at those locations. If you see them, please say hello.
If you haven’t completed the survey yet, there’s still time. They are wrapping up the survey next week (the week of January 6th). Please follow the link:
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Brian Palmer, Yvette Gesch, Becky Strachan, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow
